Cashier thwarts robbery at Yonkers gas station

A cashier at a Yonkers Gulf gas station is being hailed as a hero for preventing a robbery attempt early this morning.

The incident took place on Tuckahoe Road near the New York State Thruway.

According to reports, the suspect entered the gas station wearing a wig and asked for cigarettes before pulling out his gun and demanding money. After forking over some cash, the cashier known as Abulahab apparently took the suspect's gun, head-butted him and chased him out of the store.
